Keep going manorpark, I certainly enjoy your positivity and how much it irritates some people :)

I don't want to 'irritate' anyone, I really don't.

But, let's get real, we are ON THE WAY to a changed English Premier League, mainly for us but also for everyone else. The excitement levels for everyone as we start to thrill our way up the league.

It is a good job that the Americans are planning to go back to the moon, because they will need to go there to bring most of this City of ours back home, because that is where we will be most of the time !!!!

In a nutshell, that is why PIF want us . . .

If only there were people who were paid to investigate things and then report back the information to people

If we dont sack the waste of space called Steve Brucesoon,  the consortium may well pull out altogether as  they wont want a championship side.

Yeah, if the takeover isn't done by January transfer window, it might be too late to rescue this lot.

When you say waste of space, I take it you mean between Bruce and soon?

Didn't even realise we had played today until a mate told me about an hour ago.  It's just so f***ing s***, results used to make or break my weekend.  I don't hold much hope for this takeover, it just feels like a f***ing slow death for me.

The minute we're taken over, regardless who by, I'll be fully back in...assuming we actually aim to compete on some level.

When this takeover first looked like it was going through, it was the first time I'd felt genuinely excited since Rafa's appointment. The transfer talk about going for older strikers in order to land high quality players initially really got the juices going again. Would be quite thrilling just watching us slowly build up our quality again even if the results weren't coming immediately.

Night and day to where we are now.

Similar. For me it was seeing the result on the BBC news ticker.

I shrugged and carried on with my day, not even interested in looking into the game any further. No point caring about a pointless club.

I don't expect the takeover to go through, but if it did I'd be so delighted just to actually have a club to support again.

We all know that somehow the EPL and the big 6 will find a way to f*ck us over and block this takeover.  Hope I'm wrong but there is an hidden agenda behind this and we all know what that is.  However I do wonder whether we might get expelled from the EPL of we lose our legal challenges against the EPL!

How would we get expelled?
That would amount to even bigger legal action against the Premier League than what they are currently facing and would undoubtedly be the end of them.

So if the club is about to be sold or sold before the end of the season can anyone explain why Steve Bruce is still our manager? He might suit Ashley who is a big enough stubborn idiot to gamble that the oaf won't get us relegated, but surely the potential new owners would have told the fat man to get rid of the fat manager, and get in someone to keep us in the premier league or his dreams of getting the best part of 300M are about to go down the relegation drain.
